Crytek on Crysis 2, DRM

Round table interview with Nathan Camarillo on Gaming Nexus is part of a group phone conversation with the executive producer of Crysis 2, Crytek's upcoming first-person shooter sequel. Nathan talks about the game's change of setting, the HUD, whether gamers who skipped the first Crysis will be confused, and more. There's also a Crysis 2 interview on GameShark also talking with Nathan about how the game again demonstrates their technical prowess, a bit on the leaked version, and on a related note, his feelings about Digital Rights Management:

"I know there's a lot of negative feelings toward DRM. But, I mean, what are we supposed to do? The actions of a few are causing maybe a mild inconvenience for others. If I'm playing a game and it has DRM on it, do I notice? Not really. I just know that there's something going on, but doesn't really enhance (sic) my play experience. So, it's something that we'll have to look at in the future."

You guys try and make a wonderful argument against the devs and publishers but I never once heard anything about the pirates. The bottom line is companies would not waste their time with DRM, SecuROM, etc... if there was not a "need" to. I remember back in the day when EB would take games back. You know what caused them to stop it? The fact that people would burn the game and take it back. Now let us look at the cause and not the affect. If a game is easy to crack, warez will take advantage of that. Again, what is the true cause of DRM? Would an evil empire waste valuable resources if they did not have to? Of course not. So what is the true cause of our pain?

As far as the 20 years down the road argument. I would prefer a download system similar to what Blizzard offers. The problem with that is you need a lot of resources for bandwidth costs. Playing games 20 years down the road, not sure if you will have many games that will be that fun after so long. I barely play diablo2 anymore just after 6sh years.
 
If you were right, I would be agreeing with you.
